Designing information systems to support program activities requires an analysis of what is done and by whom throughout the process. To this end, PHII convened a workgroup in February and March 2008 to carry out the business process analysis (BPA) of NDBS from birth through long-term follow-up. This work is supported by PHII in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau (HRSA/MCHB) and the Genetics and Newborn Screening Region 3 Collaborative (Region 3).
